Hi there!

Hi! I'm the face behind EverythingPlantie. Like many of you, I have a deep passion for all things plants - whether that's inside the house or outside in the garden. Okay, if we're going to be Plantie friends, I have to be honest - I'm obsessed. I am a mama to over 100 house plants (and no - I don't have the space) and every season that passes, we lose grass in our yard as my gardens get just a bit bigger. I started posting some of my collections on my Instagram page and discovered how many other people are in love with plants too. I am an entrepreneur at heart and decided I wanted to make a living doing what I love - playing with plants and connecting to the plant loving community - beginners and seasoned. This Fall I will be launching a line of unique spring bulbs and those that can be forced indoors. I plan to blog about my experiences in the garden or with some of the projects I'm working on - both for advice to give and to get. I am beyond excited and so glad you're coming along this journey! Plants make people happy!
Loads of love, Kat 04.30.22

SPRING & FALL CROCUS

Crocus' bring so much joy to the heart - they're the first sign of spring(other than the snowdrops). Each year they come up in my garden, it's like I'm seeing them for the very first time  again. They never get old!  The collection below contains both spring and fall bloomers.
Crocus like well-drained soil in a partial to full sun location. Keep in mind, because they bloom so early in the spring, planting them under a deciduous tree that offers sun before the leaves come is an okay spot.  Apparently early foraging bees appreciate their nectar. Huh! Who knew!  Plant crocus bulbs (corms) in informal groups, just three inches deep and 2-3 inches apart. My favourite place to put them is in the grass. The colour is amazing against the new grass and they finish up before the mowing begins.

TULIPS

Purchase your tulip bulbs in late August or early September, but wait to plant them until mid-autumn. Sometimes, even early winter works best if you live in mild winter areas (Zone 6). Tulips are so eager to grow that if you plant them too soon, they’ll send their leaves up right away. Store tulip bulbs in paper bags while waiting to plant them, and keep them in a cool place.
Pick a sunny site that has good drainage. Tulips won’t grow well in shade and will rot in wet soil. Dig the area and loosen the soil about a foot (30 cm.) deep. You should add some compost or dried manure to the soil. they'd benefit from adding 5-10-5  granular fertilizer. Mix the existing soil,  amendments, and fertilizer, until well blended. Now you can easily dig the individual planting holes three times as deep as the tulip bulb is tall. There should be twice as much soil over the tip of the bulb as height of the bulb, so if your tulip bulb measures 6/7cm (2.5") tall, dig your hole 20 cm (8") deep, so you’ll have 13 cm (5") of soil above the bulb. Plant the bulb in groups of nine to twelve, and space them a couple of inches apart. Set the bulb so the pointy end is facing up. Don’t worry if you get some upside down. They should flower anyhow, but it will take them longer to come through the ground in spring and they may not be as tall as they should. After the tulips bulbs are planted, you need to water them thoroughly and then cover the area with a mulch of pine bark or shredded leaves to protect them. Have fun looking through this collection of unique beauties.

NARCISSI

Daffodil is the common name of Narcissus - and this collection below is not the common ones you'll find at the grocery store. They are one of the easiest bulbs to grow and most will naturalize and bring colour to your spring garden for years. Fun Fact: Did Narcissus secrets a sap - visible when you cut the stems that can be poisonous to other flowers. For this reason, you should keep them in their own vase but you can in the garden! Dig out a generous circle of soil, 20 to 25 cm deep, mix in a little some 10-5-10 granular fertilizer and compost, then plant your bulbs at a depth two times the bulb's height, and as far apart as they are wide.

AMARYLLIS

The best way to bring the good feels of summer colour in white it's cold and grey out - is to plant an Amaryllis. Or two. My collection include top sized bulbs that will yield more blooms year after year. Depending on the variety, blooms planted indoors will take anywhere from 6 to 10 weeks for blooms.

Plant each bulb in a 6-8" pot. Heavy pots are preferable because lightweight pots may tip over under the weight of the blooms.  Plant the bulb, pointed-end-up, in potting mix. Pack the soil gently around the bulb so approximately one-third of the bulb remains above the soil line. Place the pot in a location that receives bright, indirect light. Water sparingly until you see about 2" of new growth. From then on, water regularly. As the plant grows, turn the pot periodically to encourage the flower stalks to grow straight. Flower buds will appear at the top of each stalk, followed by a dramatic floral display. To prolong the blooms, keep the pot out of direct sunlight. You can also force amaryllis' in other mediums such as gravel and LECA. If you are interested in learning more, sign up for an upcoming workshop forcing amaryllis in mediums of your choice. 

November should get you blooms over the holidays. Depending on your plans - keep your Amaryllis in a cool dark location until you are ready for it to start wanting to send out shoots.  It's a sweet gift for anyone!

NOVELTY STOCK

I've tagged some of my stock to show up here - except for the Amaryllis because....they are ALL unique. Check out the Ice Cream series. I've never tried them (yet) but I'm told they must be in full sun. Have fun!
